MISSISSIPPI IS FOR THINKERS
Get Your GED
You want to take some college courses or earn a college degree, but you didn't finish high school? That's okay. Sometimes life just gets in the way. You can earn your GED instead.
The GED (General Educational Development) test enables adults to earn a certificate or diploma that is considered equal to the high school diploma.
The GED is developed by the GED Testing Service of the American Council on Education (ACE). In Mississippi, the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges offers Adult Basic Education services and administers the GED test.
The GED test takes about 7-1/2 hours to complete. It covers writing, reading, social studies, science and mathematics.
